Doesn't look suspicious at all

Paper votes to allow campaign fund raising while writing the budget

Always a good way to promote public trust.

In their own districts and everywhere else in Wisconsin except Dane County, lawmakers in the Assembly will now be able to collect campaign checks from donors while they are deciding who gets what out of the state's more than $65 billion budget for the next two years.

The vote was taken not in front of television cameras but by a paper ballot with minimal public notice - a growing practice in the Legislature in recent years.

I am disgusted!

I was going to post more but that's it. I am trying to get the vomit out of my mouth.

Wait a sec, people watch State Assembly votes on television?

Not exactly television, but we can watch.
